    Is my heater core bad?

    Thermostat is new; been bleeding the system like crazy and I get heat until I get on the pedal and around 45secs. to a 1min. later my heat disappears and the air goes cold.

    Bentley isn't turning anything up or I'm just not finding things in the right spot. Any clues?
    Haha I gave up on my heat a year ago. I haven't had heat since I bought it ~20 months ago. Gonna engine swap to fix it:devil:

      did my o2 sensor today on the es. Runs so much smoother . Feels like it pulls harder aswell. It was running Incredibly rough without it. Didn't think it would make that big of a difference. I imagine it will improve my gas milage aswell

          I considered it for a hot minute, but the miles kinda killed it for me, with the price being what it was.

              Picked up some items for the N54 swap. I needed some vacuum solenoids someone took on off the engine before I could grab the whole unit. Got the clutch/brake pedal assembly with master, clutch start switch, brake light switch etc.

              I also got this plastic gas tank from a 2009 328xi for $20 bucks, we will see if I can even use that son of a bitch, its a single port unit, still have yet to figure out if its worth the time; there are better options out there I can already think of, but fo $20 bucks I may experiment.

                Ah yeah, I'd be happy to ship, I'm just in SF and the car in PDX. If you find yourself in the City of Roses let me know and I'll arrange it all.

                  I can't win lately. Screw in my tire? Yup, too far over to repair. Oh and to top it off, they don't make my tires anymore. Discount wanted over $800 for a comparable set. Yup, pass. I ordered two off of tirerack to get me by and I'll mount/balance myself. T1R here I come.

                    Bummer!! I got lucky and was able to get mine repaired.. Got a screw in a set of Kumhos literally a week after I installed my Koseis.

                    Issue here is if I couldn't repair it I would have HAD to buy a new set of four. Fucking terrible.
